People I Want to Punch in the Throat: F*ck Yeah!

FB

F*ck Yeah!


Look what I saw on the news! The British did a research project about swearing. The guy in charge got the genius idea when he witnessed his wife cussing up a storm during labor and wondered if maybe it was a release and helped her endure more pain. Ya think? He didn't need to waste so much time and energy researching that. A simple phone call to me could have told him what he needed to know: I curse because I have the feels (because I'm surrounded by idiots and assholes) and sometimes those are the only words that will work to either give me the release I need or to convey to you, dear reader, how much I'm feeling. I've always said that ranting keeps me off of medication. A good fuck you, you cocksucker is like Valium for me.
I think this was my favorite quote from the whole article:

"The stereotype is that those who swear have a low IQ or are inarticulate is wrong. It is rich emotional language."

Boom, motherfuckers. I'm full of rich emotion -- whatever that means. All I know is that it's now official. I'm swearing because the doctor ordered it.

I know plenty of super-smart motherfuckers who cuss all the damn time. People need to lighten the fuck up. Don't cuss in front of my kids though. That shit pisses me off. ;)

I curse in front of everyone. Even kids. The words just fly out of my mouth. I hate it!

Swearing while telling a story about how some stupid bitch who isn't doing her fucking job, is very Therapeutic!

I laughed and snorted...

I do as well. However, I do try to control it around the older generation and kids that aren't mine. We have always cursed around the kids and they understand the appropriate context. They get away with some of the "lesser" curse words but in their rooms it is their safe haven to say what they want as long as it isn't abusive to anyone and they aren't so loud everyone can hear them cursing them out. Curse words are only curse words cause a group of people got together and said they were and everyone followed along. Fucking sheep I tell you. Words are only as powerful as we allow them to be whether they are curse words or otherwise.

I agree. Sometimes you just need to say a few fucks, to get your fucking point across.

We have never censored ourselves in front of our kids but my sister in law does and her kids curse at each other where our girls never have. It is constant one of her kids running to her with "Gretel said a bad word!" My kids don't use curse words... they just hit each other when they are mad. LOL

Not that I NEEDED a scientific argument to justify the "richness" of my language but how f*ckin' awesome to at least have one!

I saw one of those ecard things once: "I did not spew profanity; I enunciate clearly like a f*cking lady should."

I considered ordering the t-shirt.
For those who think you can express yourself better, I say: you just didn't try hard enough. get creative.

My older sister always gets so mad when my mom gets upset at something she's said. My sister will say, "But Shay--she's like a damned sailor, and besides that, she calls you a dirty whore on her blog all the time!" My mom will give me this adoring look and say, "But she says it with such LOVE." It's all in the presentation...it just adds to the "rich emotional language" part and makes us look even smarter. :)

There are some days when nothing else but a loud, long, "MOTHERFUCKER" will do. I'm kinda sad that the weather is warming up here in Minnesota. Driving with the windows down is going to crimp my style.
